We achieve this by dili­gent­ly research­ing trends, pat­terns, and strate­gies used in scams, and shar­ing our find­ings in acces­si­ble and easy-to-under­stand ways.

Research And Analysis Process

At Stamp Out Scams, we tire­less­ly work towards our mis­sion: empow­er­ing indi­vid­u­als and busi­ness­es by pro­vid­ing them with the knowl­edge they need to rec­og­nize and com­bat fraud. Inte­gral to this goal is our robust Scam Research and Analy­sis process.
Our mul­ti-step pro­ce­dure is designed to cap­ture the lat­est infor­ma­tion about fraud­u­lent activ­i­ties glob­al­ly. Start­ing with data col­lec­tion on our web­site, we make this infor­ma­tion read­i­ly avail­able to the pub­lic.
We then lever­age state-of-the-art machine learn­ing and AI tech­nol­o­gy to ana­lyze and cat­e­go­rize the col­lect­ed data, iden­ti­fy­ing pat­terns, trends, and emerg­ing threats. This enables us to pre­dict the evo­lu­tion of scams and pro­vides us with the foun­da­tion to cre­ate effec­tive pre­ven­tive strate­gies.
Our Edu­ca­tion and Aware­ness Cam­paign will uti­lize the fol­low­ing strate­gies:
  • Real time scam data is fed into our web­site from exter­nal sources on a 24/7 basis
  • Our Scam­Search tool will query all our scam relat­ed data for scam infor­ma­tion request­ed by our users
  • Our Chat­Bot named Alex is locat­ed at the bot­tom of every­one of our web­site pages.  Alex access­es intel­li­gence gath­ered via arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence.  So you can ask Alex any­thing.
  • Our scam tick­er is locat­ed at the top of almost every page of our web­site.  These tick­ers pro­vide real-time infor­ma­tion rel­a­tive to cur­rent and ongo­ing scams.
Our Scam Research and Analy­sis process is ongo­ing and adap­tive, mir­ror­ing the evolv­ing nature of scams. We firm­ly believe in stay­ing one step ahead of scam­mers. By research­ing and ana­lyz­ing scams today, we equip you to face a safer tomor­row.

Research and analy­sis by Stamp Out Scams have a sig­nif­i­cant impact on mit­i­gat­ing fraud­u­lent activ­i­ties.

Here’s how:

  • Edu­ca­tion and Aware­ness:   By con­duct­ing research on preva­lent and emerg­ing scams, we can devel­op com­pre­hen­sive edu­ca­tion­al resources to inform the pub­lic about the tac­tics scam­mers use. These resources can include infor­ma­tion­al web­sites, webi­na­rs, com­mu­ni­ty work­shops, and pub­lished reports.
  • Pol­i­cy Advo­ca­cy:   With our scam research and analy­sis, our non­prof­it can advo­cate for stricter reg­u­la­tions and leg­is­la­tion against scam­ming activ­i­ties. We can present our find­ings to law­mak­ers, thus pro­vid­ing the need­ed data to make informed pol­i­cy deci­sions that can help pre­vent scams.
  • Coop­er­a­tion with Law Enforce­ment: Research and analy­sis could uncov­er pat­terns and net­works behind scam activ­i­ties, which could be immense­ly valu­able to law enforce­ment agen­cies. By shar­ing their find­ings with these agen­cies, we can help facil­i­tate inves­ti­ga­tions and legal action against scam­mers.
  • Tech­no­log­i­cal Inno­va­tions:   Stamp Out Scams can col­lab­o­rate with tech com­pa­nies and cyber­se­cu­ri­ty pro­fes­sion­als to devel­op tech­nol­o­gy-based solu­tions to scams. These solu­tions could range from advanced fraud detec­tion algo­rithms to safer online trans­ac­tion plat­forms.

In con­clu­sion, Stamp Out Scams will use research and analy­sis to help pre­vent scams by rais­ing pub­lic aware­ness, influ­enc­ing pol­i­cy, assist­ing law enforce­ment, advanc­ing tech­no­log­i­cal solu­tions, and sup­port­ing vic­tims.

It is hard to under­es­ti­mate the dam­age done by scam­mers to their vic­tims.  Scam vic­tims suf­fer both an emo­tion­al loss and dev­as­tat­ing finan­cial loss­es.  The time is now to help put an end to scams and scam­mers.

What A Scam Victim Looks Like

On each of our “Impact of Giv­ing” pages, you will find the below pho­to gallery. We have named this gallery“What A Scam Vic­tim Looks Like.”
We include these pho­to gal­leries to serve as a stark reminder that these vic­tims look like your friend, your fam­i­ly mem­ber or just about any­one you might meet in pub­lic.   Remem­ber that if a scam can hap­pen to them, it can hap­pen to any­one.  Scam vic­tims don’t all look or sound the same.  They come in all dif­fer­ent shapes, sizes, eth­nic­i­ties, etc.
When it comes to becom­ing a vic­tim of a scam, it could hap­pen to any­one!  Scam­mers and scams do not rec­og­nize bound­aries and are only dri­ven by a poten­tial finan­cial reward.
